We present our work to Dr. David Haley and Mr. Edward Fox. Their feedback are very useful. Our design is too geometric. We should design the garden in a more organic layout as most of the Chinese garden are design in that way. We also have a chance to look at work of other group. The presentation of other group are inspiring.

Our group had chose the car park in the centre of Chinatown as our site. We found that there are a lot car park nearby so it seems a bit unnecessary. We want to transform the space to a green space. We then discuss the possible activities. Finally we had decided to use the space for open space cinema.
